The NBA is filled with fantastic basketball players, but each team has some bench players (or even starters) who fall well short of fantastic. During the 2012-13 season, these are the 50 most worthless players in the Association, although not all of them will remain worthless in the future.
Of course, using "worthless" is a bit harsh, so let me explain.
Every player in the NBA has some sort of worth or else he wouldn't be in the league comprised of the world's best basketball players. However, worth is something that can be quantified, which means that each end of the spectrum does exist. If a player can be worth more than everyone else, then someone can be worth less than everyone else as well.
Rather than thinking of these players as completely devoid of value, think of them in the way that the quasi-superlative adjective is intended: worth less than the other players who make up the league.
Only players who are in their second year or later can qualify, and players must have appeared in a game this season to be eligible.
